We’re not sure if any other dorms on campus still meet for hall snacks, but in case yours does, you have a lot of options. The good news is you don’t have to pay for anything, nor do you have to simply trick-turn a cake (yes they’re yummy, but let’s get more creative here). Even if you’re not having hall snacks, make the most of your meal plan by whipping up some fun study snacks using all ingredients are to be taken from Dewick (or Carmichael. Sorry, we’re downhillers but you guys have most of this stuff too). Tupperware is recommended.
Fancy grilled cheese or quesadilla: panini press some bread/tortilla and cheese then cut into triangles. Add and combine toppings such as tomato slices, onions, apple slices, or hummus for pizzazz!
Revised Monkey munch/Puppy chow: Rice Krispies, marshmallows or Fluff, Nutella, and peanut butter. Microwave and mix, to be eaten with a spoon. Make sure to use a big bowl when you microwave this… marshmallows puff up a LOT when microwaved. (Nutella, Peanut Butter, and Fluff are all with the spreads and toppings near the soups, Marshmallows are with the hot drinks)
Fruit salad or parfaits: yogurt, fruit, granola (FYI there are several different types of granola with the cereal)
Apple crisp: most of these ingredients can be obtained through a combination of Dewick-sneaking and trick-turning for apples, dry oatmeal, brown sugar, and butter. (These last ingredients can also be found near the soups. You will also need flour, which is a good investment anyway if you like to bake, and cinnamon if you wish.) Preparation is really easy: mix up the flour, sugar, and oatmeal for the topping and then add in enough butter to make it crumbly. Then, layer apple slices in a greased pan and spread the topping over it. Bake until the apples get gooey and the topping is golden brown–usually around 40 minutes with the oven on 350.
Thick “crepe”: use pancakes from breakfast. Can be sweet with Nutella, sugar, fruit, honey, etc; or savory with ingredients such as chicken and other meats, spinach, cheeses, mushrooms and other vegetables, eggs, ham, bacon…
Milkshakes on sundae nights: use vanilla ice cream, milk and fruit to make your own flavors or just add milk to your favorite flavor and mix.
“Ants on a Log”: celery (from Hodgdon), peanut butter, and raisins.
Pizza rolls: roll up pizza slices and cut widthwise.
